Client Commitment and Comprehensive Legal Advice

Marjorie Sher's commitment to each client is to provide comprehensive and realistic advice to the client so that they are able to make decisions that are emotionally, financially and legally sound decisions. Marjorie believes that knowledge is empowerment; and therefore, she will do everything in her power to see that each client is fully informed, as to both the law and the effects of the law to each individual issue. 

She prides herself in making every effort to maintain close communication with each client, so that each one will be prepared for the difficult choices they will certainly face in any family law matter. 

The attorney you choose can be one of the most important decisions that you make in a family law case. Issues of custody, support, property division and things of that nature are issues that can change your life in the future. 

Therefore, you should choose an attorney who practices primarily family law, one who has the experience and knowledge of the law to present to you so that you will be able to make the decisions that are in your best interest. Marjorie Sher is just that person.
